British Museum Trip
Y5’S trip to the British Museum
On Friday 15th March 2019 Y5, went to the British museum as Ancient Greece is are topic. We walked around the museum and admired the different types of pots and Greek Gods.
First, we went to our classroom and Miss Pau assigned us to our groups. I was in Mr Latham’s group, I was partnered with Joel he was funny but silly. At 9:15 we left the building we walked to the bus station and caught the 176 to Tottenham Court Road and arrived at about 11:20. After a while we made an appearance and went to discover about Ancient Greece then at about 12:30 we ate lunch, I really enjoyed lunch because of the heated flooring.
After we ate lunch, we went back to explore the museum my group discovered that Greek people use different types of pots for example the Hydria is used for carring and pouring wine and we also found out that the Jekythos is to hold oil . Later on, we went to room 13 we also saw loads of pots with interesting patterns. My group found attractive pot .
Then we went to room 14 , in this room we saw loads of ancient Gods and Goddesses I found a God called Apollo he was the God of music my group also found Athena the Goddesses of war and wisdom after that, we went to room 69 we went to case 35 and 36 we saw loads of picture they showed lots of detail. When we finished in room 69 we left the museum and cached 2 buses learned about new things and how lifestyle is in the ancient times. 2 buses and went back to school I really enjoyed the school trip because I learned about new things and how lifestyle is in the ancient times.
Happy New Year! Hopefully you all had a merry and restful break! To start of the new year, we would like to share a very important message that we focused on last half term… If you’re still short on new year’s resolutions this might inspire you!
We have been focusing on persuasive language in Literacy and we have chosen a selection of persuasive letters to share:
I am writing to you because I feel that recycling is becoming everybody’s nightmare… Well I want that to change, would you help? I was up all night researching about what harm it can make and if you didn’t know that 14million glasses and jars are sent to landfills every day in the UK isn’t that crazy.
Still people are throwing things on the floor and everything you throw kills sea life. Sea life is important, because if they eat it and then we eat that animal and then we would be eating plastic because that would be inside their body.
If you recycle it will make a huge change to the world. So let’s have a go ourselves and try to make the world a better place. Recycling is not that hard, only 40% of the world recycles. Let’s make 60% of the world recycle .
Do YOU care about our future? This is an improved and better chapter of recycling! Did you know recycling reduces pollution, reduces plastic waste AND helps the environment?
What happens if I don’t reuse reduce and recycle? That’s a very intelligent question! Here are three useful facts of things, that would happen to our precious earth if we don’t reuse reduce and recycle:
Firstly, pollution and pollutants WILL OVERPOPOULATE and KILL the Earth whether it is air, water or LAND POLLUTION!
Secondly, landfills will become SO COLLOSALL and crowded with trash! So do you want that? NO!!
Thirdly, if you don’t recycle you will hurt the environment because fish and other sea animals will eat the plastic waste, then we eat the fish with the plastic in our bodies and it might KILL US! So if you don’t recycle, it can kill HUMANS TOO!
Recyclable items are collected from your home in two ways: There are ‘curbside’ (it is collected from your sidewalk) where recyclables are sorted into their respective materials. The next one is, that it is collected DIRECTLY from your house.
You can recycle by buying stuff from the supermarket, that can be recycled. You can also recycle by reusing your materials you already have for other stuff!
I hope I convinced you to recycle and remember to recycle otherwise we’ll DIE!!
As you may have noticed, there is a serious lack of reusing recycling and reducing that needs to be resolved. Did you, that in less than two hours creates enough waste to fill the Albert Hall?
You guys might think that recycling is tedious and hard but we should recycle before it is too late. DO YOU WANT A FUTURE? The lack of recycling is appalling and the air pollution is hurting our planet and the plastic is killing our sea life. We are eating plastic from the fish.
If you recycle one tin can, it will save enough energy to power your TV for three hours. If you recycle one glass bottle, it will power your computer for twenty extra minutes.
You’re in charge here, you don’t understand the effects of the planet. All you need to do is, recycle a few old glass bottles, paper and plastic. It’s as easy as that, all you do is recycle your old things and it will save the planet. In other words, we need to recycle before it is too late and throw your rubbish in the right bin.
Our Trip to Greenwich Planetarium
Whilst we were on are school trip we manage to learn that the universe keeps growing and detracting. Scientists say that this could be because of dark energy and one day are sun will die with the rest of the universe, and maybe 140 000 years from now are day will expand to 25 hours. I wonder if children will have an extra hour of school? Did you know that Mars has the highest land point in the milky way galaxy, as well as that Neptune is not the coldest planet in our galaxy?! Pluto as we know is now classed as a star now to us children, we also know most planets were discovered by astronomers. This is our galaxy:
Did you know that there once may have been life on Mars? Did you know that Earth is 4.54 billion years old?! Jupiter and Uranus have rings- they are just very faint so you can barely see them! Our galaxy is not the only one… there are many, many others we are yet to discover!
The most interesting fact I learnt was that the milky way is made of stars!
I had a really good time, my favourite part was being with the whole class to share my experience!
We had a cracking time at the Planetarium! My favourite part was the space show- it really flew my mind!
5G CLass Blog
5G have become poets this week and written their own Limericks. I hope you enjoy reading a small selection as much as we enjoyed writing them!
Once there was a cat,
Who sat on a mat.
He was so famished,
That he just vanished,
When he came back he was very fat!
This woman is very scary,
Everyone calls her Mary.
She always has a frown,
And never turns it upside down.
Everyone says she got cursed by a hairy fairy!
I met a hairy baboon,
He adored a big balloon!
He snored at night,
Had a morning fight,
And also got stuck in a cocoon.

Year 5 bulletin
We have been inventing and writing about our own planets over the last few weeks! We wrote about the climate, size, appearance and aliens on our planets, as well as any other interesting features.
Our focus has been fractions over the last few weeks. We have been comparing simplifying, comparing and converting fractions. We have been persevering with this as sometimes it can be tricky!
Alessandra, our Italian teacher, has been teaching us how to count up to 100 in Italian; here we are in action:
Parents – How can you help?
